Micro and Nanotechnology research for you

The Biolab is dedicated to the development of Biosensors and Biointerfaces. Work in this laboratory stresses the highly interdisciplinary character of biosensing, which lies at the boundary between microbiology, electrochemistry, physics and electronics.

Accordingly, our Biolab is fully equipped for the characterization and testing of electronic and electrochemical sensing devices. The following summarizes our activities and available instrumentation.

Main activities
  • Electrochemical measurements (Potentiometric, Amperometric, Impedimetric characterization).
  • Surface functionalization (Bioincubation).
  • Evaluation of sensor for application in different areas
  • Development of (micro)fluidic systems.
  • Spectrophotometric measurements (UV-Vis detection, ELISA).
  • Optical inspection.
